Fall Flowers’ Deep Listening

Listen, listen

Fall's freshness ~d nelson

What does your blooming
inner flower hear
being softly whispered
by these dainty
Fall roses, dear one?

    They tell me there is a season for everything, and what a lovely message that is. Thanks very much, David, for this grounding visit. My best to you for a Saturday of fall freshness~~

    I, too, have been marveling at the beauty of late-blooming flowers during our extended Colorado fall. Thank you for sharing these beautiful images and reminding us to look — and listen — closely. There’s a particular beauty in the changing of the seasons, and a sharpened appreciation for summer beauty even as the loveliness of fall arrives.

    Interesting that you posted this on the Feast Day of St Therese of Lisieux, David. I just finished a novena in honour of St Therese (aka The Little Flower), asking for a shower of roses from heaven, so it was wonderful to see your beautiful blooms here. I’m going on pilgrimage to Lisieux in a few days. I will try to remember to ask St Therese to send some more roses your way. πŸ™‚ ❀

    Nothing quite as peaceful as taking time to listen to the fall roses – often just the solitary lone one rejecting the idea that summer has gone. Lovely post, David and the top photo so sheer and tactile. Beautiful.

    Planets must be in alignment, David. I’m getting ready to write about listening to the homebound folks I visit: so moving and full of meaning. Peace, John

    We are all one.
    We are many pieces.
    Like the many petals of the rose. Fragrant, colorful, beautiful, unique.
    We are the story.
    – A wonderful blog.
    Thank you for visiting nothingcluelesslost.com
